Why Exactly Should We Trust Them?
Fascinating news out of Nashville. It seems that on election day last week, while Republicans in West Tennessee are struggling to counter the Hart problem, and the TN GOP is trying to increase their presence in the General Assembly, and consolidate previous gains, that three Republican Senators attended a fund-raiser for Democrat Lt. Governor John Wilder! Thanks to them, he raised $150,000 dollars that day. Why that's more than his Republican challenger, Ron Stallings, has in the bank. How nice of them.
Curtis Person of Memphis, Mike Williams of Maynardville and Tim Burchett of Knoxville are the offenders. Yep, our Curtis Person. Perhaps you'd like to give him a piece of your mind. Or call 615-741-2419.
Wilder, as Speaker of the Senate, has created a situation that benefits him and stymies his opponents. By agreeing to help him out, certain Republicans are giving committee chairmanships. Even Governor Bredesen is bothered by it. This only serves to conflict, and hence defang, the Republicans. This shouldn't be allowed to happen, but I'm sure they'll be the first to tell you there's nothing much they can do about it.
The more you learn, the less you like 'em.
